One of the methods employed to improve healing of damaged tissues is the use of cellular based therapies. A number of regenerative medicine based strategies, from in vitro expanded mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) to "one-step" procedures using bone marrow (BM) in toto (BM aspirate; BMA) or BM concentrate (BMC), have been developed. Recently, orthopedic researchers focused their attention on the clinical therapeutic potential of BMC and BMA for musculoskeletal regeneration. BMA is reported as an excellent source of cells and growth factors...

Chondroprotectors (CP) are biological agents that contribute to the regeneration of the cartilage surfaces and articular capsule, participating in the metabolic processes of the articular cartilage. Progressive loss of hyaline cartilage and lower levels of chondroitin sulfate were observed in osteoarthritis (OA) at different sites, including dorsopathy. OA therapy is aimed at slowing disease progression, relieving pain symptoms, and reducing functional disorders. For this purpose, oral or injectable CPs (Chondroguard, Sustaguard) are prescribed...

Glucosamine (GA) is an important cartilage matrix precursor for the glycosaminoglycan biochemical synthesis, and has positive effects on cartilage regeneration, particularly in osteoarthritis therapy. However, it has not been used as a bioactive group in scaffolds for cartilage repair widely. In this study, we synthesized modified polyethylene glycol (PEG) hydrogel with glucosamine and then encapsulated human bone mesenchymal stem cells (hBMSCs) in the hydrogel to induce the differentiation of hBMSCs into chondrocytes in three-dimensional culture...

Growth factor is an essential ingredient to regulate mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) chondrogenic differentiation in cartilage tissue engineering. However, non-osteochondral specification, short plasma half time and bioactivity loss restrict growth factor's application. Thus, novel chondrogenic growth factors, specifically target osteochondral lineage cells, that can be sustained release and bioactivity protected to exert functions continually and effectively have attracted increasing researchers' interest. To achieve these goals, chitosan nanoparticles and electrospun fiber scaffolds were used as dual release system to sustain release Nel-like molecule-1 (Nell-1) growth factor and protect bioactivity, then the effect and mechanism of Nell-1 on inducing human bone MSCs (hBMSCs) differentiate toward chondrocytes were investigated...

Regenerating damaged tissue interfaces remains a significant clinical challenge, requiring recapitulation of the structure, composition and function of the native enthesis. In the ligament-to-bone interface this region transitions from ligament to fibrocartilage, to calcified cartilage and then to bone. This gradation in tissue types facilitates the transfer of load between soft and hard structures while minimizing stress concentrations at the interface. Previous attempts to engineer the ligament-bone interface have utilized various scaffold materials with an array of various cell types and/or biological cues...

Wnt-signalling cascade is one of the crucial pathways involved in the development and homeostasis of cartilage. Influencing this pathway can potentially contribute to improved cartilage repair or regeneration. One key molecular regulator of the Wnt pathway is the glycogen synthase kinase-3 enzyme, the inhibition of which allows initiation of the signalling pathway. This study aims to utilise a binary SiO2-Li2O sol-gel derived glass for controlled delivery of lithium, a known glycogen synthase kinase-3 antagonist...

Injury to the meniscus is common but few viable strategies exist for its repair or regeneration. To address this, animal models have been developed to translate new treatment strategies towards the clinic. However, there is not yet a regulatory document guiding such studies. The purpose of this study was to carry out a systematic review of the literature on meniscus treatment methods and outcomes to define the state of the field. Public databases were queried using search terms related to animal models and meniscus injury and/or repair over the years 1980-2015...

Regeneration of tissue structure with the aid of bioactive polymer matrices/composites and scaffolds for respective applications is one of the emerging areas of biomedical engineering. Recent advances in conjugated glycosaminoglycan (GAG) hybrids using natural and synthetic polymers have opened new avenues for producing a wide variety of resorbable polymer matrices. These hybrid scaffolds are low-immunogenic, highly biocompatible and biodegradable with incredible mechanical and tensile properties. GAG-based resorbable polymeric matrices are being exploited in migration of stem cells, cartilage and bone replacement/regeneration and production of scaffolds for various tissue engineering applications...

OBJECTIVES: In this study, we examine the capacity of a new parameter, based on the recovery response of articular cartilage, to distinguish between healthy and damaged tissues. We also investigate whether or not this new parameter correlates with the near-infrared (NIR) optical response of articular cartilage. DESIGN: Normal and artificially degenerated (proteoglycan-depleted) bovine cartilage samples were nondestructively probed using NIR spectroscopy. Subsequently they were subjected to a load and unloading protocol, and the recovery response was logged during unloading...

PURPOSE: Three-dimensional bioactive scaffolds are useful tools for stem cell implant in tissue-engineering. For chondral and subchondral repair, the chondroinductive and osteoinductive property of a scaffold is a major challenge. The scaffolds that aim to osteogenic differentiation have been well studied. However, cartilage cells can hardly be induced for osteogenesis, and monophase scaffolds cannot ideally repair both cartilage and subchondral defects at the same time. METHODS: We developed a novel biphase composite scaffold and observe its application osteochondral defects...

Degradable hydrogels have been developed to provide initial mechanical support to encapsulated cells while facilitating the growth of neo-tissues. When cells are encapsulated within degradable hydrogels, the process of neo-tissue growth is complicated by the coupled phenomena of transport of large extracellular matrix macromolecules and the rate of hydrogel degradation. If hydrogel degradation is too slow, neo-tissue growth is hindered, whereas if it is too fast, complete loss of mechanical integrity can occur...

In this study, poly(ε-caprolactone)/poly(3-hydroxybutyrate-co-3-hydroxyvalerate) (PCL/PHBV) blended porous scaffolds were fabricated by fused deposition modeling (FDM). PCL/PHBV filaments, initially prepared at different weight ratios, that is, 100/0, 75/25, 50/50, and 25/75, were fabricated by the lay-down pattern of 0/90/45/135° to obtain scaffolds with dimension of 6.0 × 6.0 × 2.5 mm(3) and average filament diameters and channel sizes in the ranges of 370-390 µm and 190-210 µm, respectively. To enhance the surface hydrophilicity of the materials, the scaffolds were subsequently subjected to a low pressure oxygen plasma treatment...

Background Full-thickness cartilage lesions of the patella represent a common source of pain and dysfunction. Previously reported surgical treatment options include marrow stimulation, cell-based treatments, and osteochondral transfer. Minced juvenile allograft cartilage is a novel treatment option that allows for a single stage approach for these lesions. Hypothesis Particulated juvenile allograft cartilage (PJAC) for the treatment of chondral defects of the patella would offer acceptable lesion fill rates, mature over time, and not be associated with any negative biologic effects on the surrounding tissue...

Antlers are the cranial appendages of deer that regenerate each year. This renewal provides a model to explore molecules involved in mammalian organ regeneration. The cellular distributions of the brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) and the isoforms of its cognate receptor Trk tyrosine kinase receptor (TrkB) were localized by immunohistochemistry in sections of growing red deer antler. BDNF and TrkB full length were widely expressed in the integument, perichondrium, periosteum and bone. The truncated isoform receptor was particularly evidenced in integument and vascular inner dermis, but very light reaction was observed in cartilage and bone, both at the site of endochondral and intramembranous ossification...

MSCs are known as multipotent mesenchymal stem cells that have been found capable of differentiating into various lineages including cartilage. However, recent studies suggest MSCs are pericytes that stimulate tissue repair through trophic signaling. Aimed at articular cartilage repair in an one-stage cell transplantation, this study provides first clinical evidence that MSCs stimulate autologous cartilage repair in the knee without engrafting in the host tissue. A phase I (first-in-man) clinical trial studied the one-stage application of allogeneic MSCs mixed with 10% or 20% recycled defect derived autologous chondrons for the treatment of cartilage defects in 35 patients...

Cartilage tissue engineering is an emerging technique for the regeneration of cartilage tissue damaged as a result of trauma or disease. As the propensity for healing and regenerative capabilities of articular cartilage are limited, its repair remains one of the most challenging issues of musculoskeletal medicine. Clinical treatments intended to promote the success and complete repair of partial- and full-thickness articular cartilage defects are still unpredictable. However, one of the most exciting theories is that treatment of damaged articular cartilage can be realized with cartilage tissue engineering...

Since articular cartilage has a limited regeneration potential, for developing biological therapies for cartilage regeneration it is important to study the mechanisms underlying chondrogenesis of stem cells. Bioluminescence assays can visualize a wide range of biological phenomena such as gene expression, signaling, metabolism, development, cellular movements, and molecular interactions by using visible light and thus contribute substantially to elucidation of their biological functions. This article gives a concise review to introduce basic principles of bioluminescence assays and applications of the technology to visualize the processes of chondrogenesis and cartilage regeneration...
